The Nest thermostat is the latest hot-ticket item to sweep through the internet. While perhaps a bit pricey at first glance, the $250 in-home Nest Learning Thermostat promises to save you money in the long run. The Nest Learning Thermostat is a self-programming, “smart” thermostat, which learns your preferences, turns itself off when you’re not around, monitors your energy usage, and can be controlled with your iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer (and your Android device, too).
The Nest Learning Thermostat offers a design reminiscent of Apple’s products, making it only fitting that the Cupertino-based retailer has begun offering the Nest Learning Thermostat for sale via its online store. The Nest itself is selling the thermostat for $249, though Apple is adding $0.95 to the final sale price. Apple’s $249.95 price includes free shipping, something Nest charges $10 or more for. Those looking to get their hands on the Nest can begin ordering the product from the Apple store today.
